Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Oklahoma has a "fly over state" reputation, to the point where you probably never considered spending your vacation days at "The Big Friendly." But if you like a creative scene full of street art, a whole creative district, and quirky attractions, Oklahoma City is your guy.

While there go see "The Womb," which is a psychedelic arts complex founded by the frontman of the Flaming Lips — which not only has rotating art experiments but also live shows. Then try the Glass Gem Corn specialty in Oklahoma, where the kernels literally look like gems, and then head over to Plaza District to experience OK's creative, local flavor.
